WTF are you rambling about ?
Vice - That is a beautifully specced machine - Congrats - and the red cables are beautiful - do they have other aftermarket cables where you bought them ? (Seasonic 1KW Platinum) ?
You definitely dropped some coin, but what impressed me was the 3x 30" Dell LCDs
Cant wait to see the final pics with the cable mgmt. & everything - so far it is a thing of beauty - Im sure you will enjoy it for a while.
You've actually inspired me to get moving forward on my new build - time to say g'bye to the old Core i7 950
+1 on the mushkin - always been a HUGE fan of their RAM.
Unfortunately these cables are unique to Corsair. Corsair actually make them themselves and sell them on their own store for their own power supplies. The best you can get for other power supplies are extension cables from the likes of NZXT which although look good add significant length to the size of the cables and make it even more difficult to hide cables.
Corsair offer these cable sets for the HX and AX series power supplies in multiple capacities and colours including White, Red, Blue and Black. All are single braided and look fantastic, very high quality braid.
About the cable management: Unfortunately my case has no where to hide cables. Behind the motherboard tray there is no room and my case is separate out in to three compartments with the PSU + Optical at the top, Motherboard in the centre and Hard Disks at the bottom. There is literally no where at all to hide or route cables other than how it is in the pictures. There isn't even any room in the top compartment to stuff cables in to so that they don't look so slack when they dangle down. Sucks.
I also love the Mushkin Memory I have 24GB of it in my Server at the moment (Core i7 920 / 70TB Storage / 24GB Mushkin Memory / 9260 RAID Card + HP SAS Expander in a Lian Li PC-343B Case with a HX1000 PSU by Corsair) and that memory was killer which was one of the main reasons I decided to go with them again but also I love the look of the Redline Ridgebacks over the Corsair GT's (which are also Red) I just wish the Mushkin was in stock so I can finally finish this thing.
